The Padres have finalized a five-player trade with the Los Angeles Dodgers that sends slugger Matt Kemp and $32 million to San Diego in exchange for catcher Yasmani Grandal. The teams agreed to the deal last week but didn’t finalize it until Thursday. There was no explanation for the holdup, although the Padres reportedly had concerns about Kemp’s physical. San Diego also gets catcher Tim Federowicz. The Dodgers also receive right-handed pitchers Joe Wieland and Zach Eflin. The Padres are waiting to finalize an 11-player, three-team trade that will bring them outfielder Wil Myers, the 2013 AL Rookie of the Year, from Tampa Bay. – AP
